Dwayne Johnson rocked “WWE Monday Night Raw” Monday night with an “electrifying” announcement.

The Rock declared he’s hosting WWE’s WrestleMania XXVII on April 3 in Atlanta. The event will be broadcast in more than 80 countries world wide. While he reveals only that he’s this year’s host, The Rock is probably cooking up some surprising, totally unstaged mat action as well.

“The Rock has come back to Wrestlemania. The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!” The Rock said in the announcement. “Do you smelllllll what the rock is cooking???”
